Don’t Do Life Alone

“All my life, I said I hated small groups. People are fake. I don’t need to go share my feelings with strangers.”  We can all relate to these types of anxious thoughts driven by fear. Clint just happened to put it into words. This past December Clint shared with us on the blog how spiritual family changed his life, but it wasn’t just a one time thing. Take a look at how he is still experiencing the power of spiritual…

Don’t Give Up: The Power of Prayer

A lot of us hope for physical answers to our prayers. We wait for them, but the answers don’t always come when we want them to. Cindy felt this first-hand. She prayed for a miracle on her own for many years. But, in November 2019, God answered her prayers and changed her life.  “I have been battling asthma for 20 plus years, and the longer it’s gone, the more severe it’s gotten.  I’ve been to just about every hospital in…

Open & Honest: Thoughts from a Men’s Small Group

Men meeting with other men for barbeque, football, and hunting? That’s typical. But men trusting each other with their struggles and building deep friendships based on transparency and the Bible? That’s special. It doesn’t happen all the time, but when it does, men are empowered to become better leaders, fathers, and husbands. This is exactly what’s happening in Joe and Nando’s Small Group. They’ve been through three Milestone Small Group programs together and are still building relationships to last. Today,…

For some people, it may have been just a short, fleeting moment of feeling this way, but for many of us, we’ve had to fight through those feelings over and over again.  Growing up, Kayla was no stranger to those feelings of loneliness, but now, she’s experiencing a new way of life,…

What’s Your Next Step?

Throughout the VISION series, we’ve been looking at this graphic to remind us that we all have a part to play in saying “yes” to Jesus and taking next steps. But sometimes we struggle with knowing what that practically looks like. This week we heard a great story of a group of guys who lived out this vision by simply taking a next step. Back in April, a men’s Small Group leader had been reminding his group that each member…

Chasing Warmth in Midwest Winters

We discovered Milestone Church in 2010 after moving to Keller from Austin. After trying a lot of really great churches, we knew Milestone was home as soon as we walked through the door. From the warm greeting in the parking lot, to the kindness and hospitality of everyone we met—this was home. We quickly worked through the Growth Track, got involved in small groups, discovered a passion for hospitality and greeting, and eventually joined the Growth Track volunteer team. My…

The Cure For Loneliness

Spiritual family has been a core value here at Milestone from the start. We see from Scripture that God always builds through family, both natural and spiritual. The truth is, life isn’t easy. We will all encounter hardships, trials and pain. Yet the Bible tells us we aren’t meant to carry our burdens on our own. After her husband passed away three years ago, Linda Wagstaff found herself lonely and alone. “I quit going to church when he died and…
